CARVALHO, Gustavo de Sá Menezes et al. Nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.114-115. ISSN 0365-0596.

We report a case of nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis of Hoffman-Zurhelle (NCLS), with multiple lesions, in a ten-year-old child. The NLCS is considered rare. The classical clinical presentation is characterized by multiple skin-colored or yellowish papules and nodules, which can have a linear distribution. Histologically, it is characterized by the presence of mature ectopic adipocytes in the dermis. The main therapeutic option is surgical excision. The classical Nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis is reported in this case.
